How does getting hypnotized to quit smoking work?
Many misconceptions exist about hypnosis, and much of this comes from what we see in movies and on television. You must remember that the directors of those movies and the television programs are trying to entertain people, rather than inform them about the subject of hypnosis, and this results in people developing false impressions and total misunderstandings about hypnosis. You are never out of control. You are never under some sort of zombie-like unconscious spell, in fact you are totally IN control at all times, and are totally aware of what is happening around you the whole time.
A smoker may consciously want to quit smoking. They don’t like the terrible smell. They don’t like the way it affects their health. They don’t like burning holes in their clothes and furnishings, and they certainly don’t like watching their money go up in smoke. Yet they continue smoking in spite of their many reasons for wanting to quit. These people are unable to quit because they are being controlled by thoughts, imprints, and impressions, which exist in their subconscious minds. The conscious level of the mind can be used to reason and think, but it cannot overrule the control of the subconscious mind that has been programmed by thoughts, imprints, and impressions, that the conscious level of the mind is not even aware of.
Our hypnosis to quit smoking gives your subconscious mind the suggestions and instructions it needs to change and clear out all of those thoughts, imprints, and impressions, which are currently causing you to continue to smoke. This is one of the main reasons why hypnosis can be so powerful in helping people overcome the smoking habit.
Once a person has been guided into a hypnotic state, the subconscious level of the mind becomes much more susceptible to suggestions. The person is completely aware of what the therapist is saying, and the suggestions given by the therapist are received by the subconscious mind and have a powerful and profound effect in releasing those thoughts, imprints, and impressions that have been causing the problem.
Unless the subconscious mind is changed, the smoking habit continues to dominate the person. Normal willpower can only dent the surface temporarily. Hypnosis can continually change the subconscious mind and most people never want to smoke again. Your subconscious mind will also be given suggestions to automatically, without forethought:
- To keep you calm and relaxed as you go about your normal daily activities, so you will not stress as a result of not smoking.
- Not to substitute food for cigarettes so you will not put on any excess weight as a result of not smoking.
- To cope with the situation of being around other smokers.
- Strategies to deal with any residual withdrawal symptoms or cravings.
As a result of the hypnotic process, your cravings and withdrawal symptoms tend to reduce by between 80% and 100%*. Some may still experience a tiny bit of residual withdrawal symptoms, however your subconscious mind will receive strategies for dealing with any residual cravings, so that as soon as the strategy is put in place, the craving disappears very quickly. The actual session itself is very positive and uplifting, and you will feel wonderful to finally be a non-smoker. Rather than being cranky and moody, you will feel terrific about not smoking. You can get rid of the smoking habit with our SSO than by any other method being used today, and in over 98% of cases* of most smokers it only takes one session to continually overcome the smoking habit.
NOTE: This same program works for anyone who dips or chews tobacco.
